    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The ‘"unreasonable man" himself is interviewed, too, and he comes across as patient, articulate, and maddeningly uncompromising. show more

    It may most aptly sum up the who the hell Ralph Nader is and why he insists on creating such a ruckus. show more

    Film Threat

    It's a nice refresher course to remind us how hard Nader has fought for everyday citizens, ultimately saving hundreds of lives in the long run. show more
